I have a windows 2k3 server, i would like to be able to use a remote desktop program to view what my windows 2000 o.s. clients are looking at.  the thing that microsoft has for download is only for XP clients, all my client machines are windows 2000!  this is giving me a head ache...

What do you recommend as the best CrazyOne - I have been using tightvnc for ages but it could be time to change to improved software.
I like tightvnc because its easy to install remotely and the port can configured.

Dameware is good. You can install the service remotely & remove it once you're done. Leaves no trace :), except in the event log of course, but that can be cleared as well. Nasty...

The other features of Dameware are good too from an administrative point of view. Have a look at it.

emilbus20,

Thanks for the points.

It's EE policy to accept the first answer that solves your problem, so by right, CrazyOne's comment should get accepted. I was just elaborating on a product which I've used before. You can post a request at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/ to split the points. Thanks.
